Head to Toe : How Ballroom Dancers Use Their Feet

Ever watch your favorite dance show and wonder what exactly makes one dance different from the next? There are two general categories of dance in the ballroom world; smooth dances vs rhythm dances. Save the long gowns and mini skirts, one of the main differences between the two is how dancers use their feet. Footwork is one of the most important skills dancers can have. But before we get to the feet, just what is a rhythm or a smooth

How Learning to Dance Reconnects You With Your Community One of the best things about learning to dance isn’t actually about the dancing at all.

Why Dance Is The Key To Happiness

How Dance Lets You Grow To New Heights “Dance has given to me is the freedom to be able to be myself, my authentic self, and knowing that that’s ok. You would be amazed to see how somebody starts out the very first time dancing, and how they are just a few short weeks after — how the blossom and how they grow. And how much happier and fulfilled they feel in their lives.” Daniela, who is part of the Arthur Murray

Command The Room’s Attention: Standing With Confidence & Poise

Take it from an Arthur Murray Professional; it’s not just those born graceful who can become “dancers.” Anybody can learn how to dance, and anybody can learn to look and feel more graceful, confident, and powerful. Jindalae, an Arthur Murray Instructor, can attest; “Before I started dancing I didn’t feel as though I had any grace or any poise whatsoever. But as I learned more I had to do things like stretch to connect better with my partner or keep

Roxanne & Ben were invaluable in helping prep us for our wedding. What a fun and rewarding crash course in the art of the box step and twirl.

Ben and Roxanne are both such fun, skilled instructors! My fiancé and I had a four lesson “crash course” with them during which they helped us get ready for the first dance at our wedding. We haven’t had our wedding yet, but we feel so much more confident for the big day after learning the dance they choreographed for our song! We can’t wait to refine it and have a blast.

This place is really sweet. The instructors are all very knowledgeable, kind, and fun! You can tell they really put effort into building a sense of community and non judgement. A refreshing experience to be a part of the little Arthur Murray family for a while while I lived in this part of town. Highly recommend for anyone like me that doesn’t have any experience and wants to give it a go in a welcoming place with folks of all skill levels 👍.

Had our dance lessons here for our wedding. I went in not being able to keep a beat and with no dance knowledge. After just 2 months of classes I felt confident during mine and my wife’s first dance. We worked closest with Ben and he was excellent. Every time we got to work with Bob and Roxanne their enthusiasm rubbed off on us and we had a great time.

Arthur Murray/ An unforgettable Memory, Sooseon Kim “Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we’re here we should dance.” Hi. This is Susan Kim. I’m from Seoul, Korea. I want to share a very special experience I had during last summer. I was so lucky to join the ballroom dance classes for 2 weeks at Arthur Murray (Franchised Dance Centers), located in Highland Park, NJ After the first free lesson and consultation with the instructor, Ben, I instantly decided to register Arthur Murray and spend my time & energy on Ballroom dancing. Ben recommended me to choose ‘Starter Program Package’. At that time, I only had two weeks left before going back to Korea. He explained to me, “It would be great to experience as many as possible in various ways. Starter Program consists of Individual Lesson, Group Lesson and Practice Session. How was it? It was an absolutely awesome experience. All the teachers and staff were kind, friendly and gorgeous. Also, the atmosphere of the studio was very comfortable and convenient for the sake of students. Needless to say, Ben was a very gentle, professional and confident teacher. I instantly figured out how extremely well-qualified he was. I was amazed by not only his elaborate teaching skills but also his endless patience with his students.^^ Actually, I never expected that there was a decent dance studio near my place, New Brunswick. I only searched several dance centers in Manhattan and gave up easily due to an inconvenient location. That’s why I was so excited to find out Arthur Murray in Highland Park. “Exposure & Repetition” these two key words that Ben emphasized to me every time. Those two words are still kept in my mind.

We have loved our classes at Arthur Murray! My husband and I have always wanted to be able to dance at weddings and now we can and do! We enjoyed our beginners program so much that we signed up for the next level as a 30th anniversary present to ourselves. The teachers are all wonderful and so are our fellow students. Highly recommend!
